Advocacy

TNOYS advocates for funding, policies, and programs that benefit young people who are struggling, their families, and the organizations that serve them. In addition to maintaining an active presence at the State Capitol and beyond to actively lobby on behalf of young people , we organize our members and the young people they support and equip them to advocate directly. We work at the grassroots level by facilitating advocacy training workshops, coordinating lobbying days, developing information materials that promote our priorities, and producing newsletters with legislative updates and educational information regarding opportunities to influence decisions. Additionally, we work closely with other advocacy organizations and coalition groups that are also working to create a better world for young people and their families.
